Christmas is a very special time of year that brings about fun holiday-related activities, from throwing parties to snuggling up to watch your favorite Christmas movies. Regardless of your plans, decorating your home is always a must – people (including yourself) appreciate the coziness and warmth your home gives. While the thought of Christmas typically conjures thoughts of traditional red and green decorations, there are a variety of ways to express your holiday spirit.

One of my favorite movies, You’ve Got Mail, says it best, “Don’t you just love New York in the fall?

Having family and friends over for the holidays can be a gratifying experience. Guests are appreciative of the time you’ve taken to prepare dinner and the trouble you’ve gone through to immaculately clean your home. When entertaining your company, the interior of your home becomes a cheerful and harmonious environment. However, the outside of your home should exude the same feeling. By adding a few accessories to your outdoor seating area, you can create a warm, welcoming ambiance.
